10724 De-Qing Wen: Ronde des Pagodes (2001 / 10) 5'40
for four-handed piano
sFr. 31.00
I revisited ‘Laideronnette, Impératrice des Pagodes’ by Maurice Ravel; this work is inspired by China and I am a Chinese composer. But the result shows that Ravel's piece is much more Chinese then mine! In the last ninety years the musical language has been revolutionised more than once and this can certainly be heard. Yet something has been kept by the music, something which reveals the imagination, the sentiments, the colour, the form. The first theme of my piece comes from the second piano in the introduction of Ravel's piece - even if it may seem deformed. The music then simply follows the text of Madame d'Aulnoy.
